It's been a while now since I had one of those meltdowns Jyn but I do remember them all too well. I remember having them hit me out of the blue after not having had one for a month & then wham! you're in the store & you just want to slide down to a sitting position & bawl out loud. ((((((JYN))))))))
Your bf sounds like a great guy so keep him around for a while.
BTW, Herb Ox bouillon is gluten free & says so right on the label. Both the chicken & the beef so now you can have bouillon hon.
